Motorola Xoom gets priced up

Mobile phone and now tablet maker Motorola Mobility has released the pricing of its Xoom tablet device, for £499 with the WIFI only version and £599 for the WIFI+3G.

Motorola’s Xoom is set to be the first Android ‘Honeycomb’ 3.0 based tablet to arrive, with an operating system that has been specifically design for such a large screen product which could very well be a serious contender to the iPad’s crown.

The Xoom will tip up with a 10.1-inch 1280x800 16:9 touch screen, which is powered by a dual-core 1GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, with 1GB of DDR2 computer memory and a 5 megapixel camera with dual LED flash that’s capable of HD video capture – with media displayable from the HDMI socket, to a compatible TV screen.

Both versions of the Motorola Xoom are due to arrive early April, which are available to pre-order from Carphone Warehouse, Best Buy, Currys and PC World.

One Mobile Ring recently spent some time with the Xoom at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, where we manage to capture a hands-on video walk-through of the tablet that can be seen here.
